Verdict

Jim Bolger has his first home runner of the year here in Confident Club, who was a disappointing favourite last month after a short-head defeat in November. Legal Lyric represents Willie Mullins but looks high in the weights on what he's achieved and Khelino looks to have a better chance as she's been running well from her new mark after scoring here in November. Light Zabeel is still a maiden and the veteran King's Jester has a poor strike-rate on the surface so it's MEA PARVITAS who gets the nod. Mick Halford's filly hasn't had much racing and though having her first start at this trip, looked as though she would be suited when staying on strongly behind Doonard Prince three weeks ago.
